Paper on magnetic microrobots

Kiarash and coauthors have published a paper showing how magnetic properties of real materials lead to a new physical limit on the propulsion of rotated microrobots.  The results are especially relevant to soft magnetic microrobots.  This paper was selected as an Editors’ Suggestion in Physical Review Fluids.
